Hi there 👋

I'm Karthik Puvvada, often called 'KP' by friends and my audience on the Internet.

I previously worked as a Program Director at Day One, a premier founder school backed by Gary Vee and Antler Ventures. Before that, I built a $1m+ educational program and community at On Deck that served more than 500 ambitious no-code builders & founders.

In 2020, I’ve gained accidental popularity as the “Build In Public” guy. Ever since I’ve published thousands of tweets on the topic to help founders and creators leverage this framework and build an audience on the Internet. [Full Bio is here]
